The tiny apartment shown in the contiguous photos is located on the upper level of an old Haussmann building in Paris. These rooms are known for various utilizations over time but they were always considered by their small sizes, difficult to access and rudimentary for habitation. Initially designed in order to be cabins for servants and maids that served the building, these rooms have become in time attics, closets and storage spaces. Today, the rising prices in the real estate area and apartments have made these spaces somehow forgotten, to be reviewed and reassessed as possible living spaces.

Thus, KitoKo Studio has managed to transform such a room of 8 square meters, into a living space, functional in all that presumes the basic necessities for a home. It was resorted to a modular furniture body that performs a variety of domestic functions which includes a storage space, a bed, a table, a ladder, a closet, a bathroom and a kitchenette. KitoKo Studio demonstrates that a space so small can be optimized, so an 8 square meters apartment can come true. These modular systems with multiple functions seem to be a good solution for small spaces. A similar solution is also The Living Cube that I have recently written about.
